“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

Transfer Adhesive


The transfer adhesive LMI stocks is the same one used by Martin™, Gibson™, Santa Cruz, Taylor, and many other makers of fine instruments. It is perfectly clear, thin (3 mils without the backing), extremely aggressive, tenacious, heat resistant (up to 200°), and waterproof. Simply unroll to expose the adhesive, apply to the back of the pickguard, trim away the excess with a sharp knife and (after removing the protective layer of wax paper) press firmly down to the surface. Once you try this method, you will never use anything else. Guaranteed!
